Butterflies, succulents, and an art museum wedding in San Diego

Elizabeth and Michelle wanted to be surrounded by art at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. Their ceremony was held under the grandest of structures, "Pleasure Point" by Nancy Rubins. Allana of Ars Magna Studio captured the magic between these two lovebirds.


The outdoor ceremony under "Pleasure Point."


The decor had hues of orange, green, gray, and white with butterfly elements, as seen in these centerpiece shots.


Michelle made the lovely succulent bouquets for the two brides herself, pulling in the pale greens and whites of the palette.


These were the bouquets for the rest of the party.


The half-hidden party!


Check out this cake! So simple and so gorgeous.


Detail shot! Butterflies scrambling over snow.


A lace dress and a black and white dress. Super chic style for a chic locale.


The guests threw bouquets of lavender that broke open and scented the room. We mentioned lavender in our send-off alternatives!


Cake cutting, nomming, dancing, and photo snapping. The structure of the room is amazing.
